Some WIP shots of foot and mounted BBs at:


The mounted are Italeri Mamalukes, the Amir/Bey started as an Italeri French nap staff officer witha Barzo Barbary Pirates' head. No idea why I bothered using that as the starting point, 'cause you can't see it under all that greenstuff!

Foot figures are all Barzo BPs, chopped around and added too – really nice set I think apart from a couple of anatomical impossibilities.

Hugely impressive. I like your handy work with those figure conversions very much.

There is something bizarrely interesting (attractive?) with the Bashi-Bazouk clothing. wink

I like the additional weapons you've put in their sashes--the mark of a true bashi-bazouk!

Thanks for the kind words, gents.

Yes, 'additional weapons' seemed to be the order of the day! The yataghan knives came from plastic toothpicks, BTW, a very useful item for the 54mm converter.

The mounted figures primed ok but when I started painting I just could not get the feel for them. Colour schemes seemed either to uniform or too wild, so I have put them aside to come back to another time and hope they work then…
